Report: SkyBridge Capital founder may not get Trump adviser role

Anthony Scaramucci may not join President Donald Trump's staff at the White House in a senior role, Bloomberg News reported, citing "a senior administration official."

The SkyBridge Capital II LLC founder, a member of Trump's transition team, was reported to have been selected to head the White House Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs, but a formal announcement of his appointment was being awaited.

The Office of Government Ethics is reviewing Scaramucci's financial disclosures for the liaison position, but the White House did not want to wait until the review was over, which could take as long as 90 days, the source said.

A spokesman for the ethics office, however, denied that clearance from the office was necessary before making White House appointments. According to a CNBC report, the long review period is related to Scaramucci's pending sale of SkyBridge Capital.

Scaramucci could rather be offered an ambassadorship, according to Bloomberg News.
